Special Tennessee/Georgia water wars beer for sale now

A beer brewed specially for the Tennessee-Georgia football game is now on sale in East Tennessee. Saw-Works Brewing Company in Knoxville and Terrapin Beer Company in Athens, Georgia teamed up to make the beer.

It's called "35th Parallel Ale" which is a reference to the ongoing feud over the state line. Georgia contends the lines were drawn incorrectly, and wants it moved a mile north, to the 35th parallel, which would give them access to the Tennessee River.

The two breweries used some of that disputed water to make this special batch of beer.

Restaurants and bars in Knoxville started selling the beer on Tuesday. The beer companies only made a small batch, so it may run out before the end of gameday on Saturday.

They plan to do the same thing next year, when the game moves to Athens.
